Racing Beat Mazda Miata Carbon Fiber Cold Air Duct 1999-2005 - Non-Turbo
For use with the Racing Beat High Flow Intake Assembly
1999-05 Miata - ALL non-turbo models
Absolutely stunning!! Not only is this intake duct exceptionally functional, but it is certainly one of the best looking intake components that you will EVER lay your eyes upon! Racing Beat has developed a Cold Air Intake system for the Miata that is both functional and extremely attractive. Intended to function with the Racing Beat High Flow Intake Assembly on all 1999-2005 non-turbo Miatas, the Cold Air Duct allows the intake to draw ONLY cooler ambient air into the intake duct.
When our engineering staff was modifying our High Flow Kit to function on the revised second generation Miata (1999-05), they noted that Mazda had placed a sizable opening in the area engine compartment just behind the driverís side headlamp. Much to our luck, the inlet end of our High Flow Intake was positioned almost directly over this opening!
After modifying the High Flow Intake Kit to fit this revised application, we set our sights on developing a Cold Air Intake Duct to utilize this new found source of cool intake air. After debating on whether to use plastic or fiberglass material, and consulting with several manufacturing shops, we reviewed many prototypes and finally arrived at a finished product. Select these links for a larger view of the carbon fiber duct unit, and the the duct unit with the High Flow Intake Assembly.
Each duct is produced from hand-laid carbon fiber and fiberglass mat and finished a high-gloss gel-coat finish. The resulting product is a beautiful piece that is both strong and very lightweight. Fitted to the exact contours of the engine compartment, and finished with an interlocking insulation trim, the precision fit of this intake virtually eliminates the introduction of hot engine compartment air into the intake.
As with all Racing Beat parts, we undertook extensive testing during the development of this kit. Prior to testing, a hole was drilled into the end of the K&N filter and a temperature sensor probe was inserted, which led to a digital temperature gauge in the cockpit. During test runs at 55 MPH (79 degrees ambient air temperature), intake air temperatures were recorded up to 15 degrees cooler inside the air filter with the duct installed!
California Emissions Notice
This intake duct has received an emissions exemption from CARB (California Air Resource Board). Each intake duct is supplied with a compliance decal, which lists the applicable Executive Order number and the specific application. Simply install this decal under the hood of your car prior to your next tail pipe emissions test.
Price is for the cold air duct ONLY, the High Flow Kit is available separately.
